Finally, after a long wait, the all-new 2021 BMW iX3 was officially unveiled, the new electric all-wheel drive SUV made by the Bavarian manufacturer.
This new production electric vehicle is based on the current BMW X3 model, as it was supplied with the fifth generation of the eDrive electric system, and it comes from the outside with a closed front grille that does not contain any vents as it is a car that works on electric energy and is not equipped with an oil engine that needs to be cooled. The closed grille carries the BMW design identity known as “kidney grills.” And the vehicle has 19-inch alloy wheels with great aerodynamic efficiency and a drag coefficient of 5%, which adds 10 km to the range of the vehicle.
